Just wanted to follow upon Liam's recommendation from yesterday of 9/26/72 Stanley Theater. After giving the entire show its' proper attention, I mush heartily agree with good Liam and second his opinion. Fine, fine show amidst a group of fine shows, not to be overlooked. As stated by several others here the He's Gone is maybe the best one I've ever heard. Do yourself a favor and if you haven't rushed out to listen to this one, do so now.

I thank you so much for that, SDH- but moreso thank the good folks at Speedingarrow who made it possible for me to listen to it- for those without the patience the fun starts at the ten minute mark and from 13:30 minutes on is sheer opiate-like bliss.

We do not often see posts like this, so I thank you again Mr. Hollow for the validation- I am so glad I can make a contribution amidst the fog in my life

Stanley Theatre '72 is definitely one of the best 3 night stands ever...

can't say this He's Gone is any better or worse than 09-28, but that is credit to how tight they were in '72...I notice that Weir is goofing around with his Bird Song licks in the intro...09-28 is one of my baby's, one of the first tapes I ever got...

now I have to check out Bird song and Cumberland!

06-16-1985 has been referred to as the "ecstacy show"...it's even mentioned in one of the deadbases how people were writhing and mass hug-steria ensued...i wouldn't touch X with a ten foot phish fan but i definitely could only imagine being dosed at the Greek during that second set had to be something that gives me chills and I wasn't even there...

"ten foot phish fan" -- fuckin hilariousness. Going back to one of last's year's posts "LMFAO!" Do ya rem that one?

PS. Bobby and the band are kicking major ass on that BTW, thanks a million man. I knew it was going to be kick ass, so i dusted off the rather new M-Audio monitors to piss off the neighbors.

Update: Holy shit, Scarlet just entered the airwaves of Thailand!

I wish you could really know how extreme it got. I had a complete stranger play the drums on my back while I was in a trance during the cryptical/ other one while my friends were wondering if I had lost it.
The whole weekend was occured after I was actually hit by a real bus and thrown 30 ft in the air and walked away unhurt. Life truely is majical!

Thus the name! buscameby

I am going to listen to that 6.16.85 show thanks to you and your amazing bus story. Would you recommend the SBD you posted a review on or the Oade recording?

Not sure if you found this feature yet, but you can go into a year in Dead history at this link. Then in that year the shows are listed chronologically. I think there were 6 entries for the 6.16.85 show.

One of the reall biggies is 06-07,08,09-1977 at Winterland...Betty Board central...all three shows rock...I know that alot of the Greek Theater and Red Rocks shows were 3 night stands...i.e. 05-21,22,23-1982 at the Greek ...those are really sweet and sound great too...another good one is 03-18,18,20-1977 at Winterland...and because Smiles will put this anyway, 09-14,15,16-1978 at Giza, Egypt...(not really that great but what the hell)...can't think of anything else off hand...

Damn that China--Rider just blows my mind! Right up there with Winterland Feb 74 and 3.9.81, just to name a sweet few.

Strat, i am listening to 9.26.72 now, Black Throated Wind, it's OK. I really love the one from DP 7, Sep - Europe. What are some standouts of this song. This is one I also love to play on the acoustic guitar. I love singin, "Goin, goin, goin, back home..." like Blobby, whoops, Booby.

IMHO, the Ark run, 4/21-23/69 HAS to be included on anyone's list of strong 3-night stands. Every night's strong; 3 nites of Dark Star, with it emerging from Foxey Lady jam on the night of the 21st. The boyz are on straight through.

And, hey, the only thing better than 2 nites of "69" is 3...

Peace.

For late era Dead, you'd have a hard time finding a 3 night stand much better than the Knick shows from 1990. 3/24 has excellent Aud sources here and the 3/25 is in a pristine SBD here as well. 3/26 is found only on the Dozin' At The Knick release as far as I know, but unlike the commercial release, the two previous nights here are complete performances. These shows are one of the few occasions in my experiences where listening to the tapes later matched my feelings after seeing them live.

Yes, I am going to listen to that next. Aud of the 24th sounds cool.

Well, to name the obvious, Alpine 7-17/18/19-89 and Cap 3-14/15/16-90 -- Happy B Day Again Phil.

PS. Did I just heard Bobby say, "Everyone Poka!" from Mexicali -- 9.26.72 -- He's classic, did everyone see the jump and split on stage the other nite. I want to call him to see what was up with that and if he could do it again.

if the final nite of the three nites didn't come across as less than great, i would suggest the Uptown Theatre shows, 2/26-27-28/81; the 26th is my fave, though i seem to recall that the 27th is more widely appreciated; all three are part of the sickbits matrix conversions done i think by Chris Chappell, and are worth seeking out ... cheers!

To these ears, the 23rd is definitely on par with the previous 2 nights. All 3 nights just smoke. Going into Dark Star, there's a cool moment where Jerry's apparently answering a request: "Naw, fuck you. You got to stick around if you want Morning Dew...you got to stick around at least till morning..."

It was definitely worth waiting into the wee hours for, imo. If memory serves, there's also a Mountain Jam tease in there, late in the show. Here tis:

This is how i listen to the 26th: the first set from Stranger thru Peggy-O, at which point i skip Passenger, Tenn Jed & Music Never Stopped, and then into the 2nd set, and i listen to the entire thing, but skip Johnny B Goode, and go right to the US Blues encore. Okay, the standouts for me, apart from pretty much the entire 2nd set, is an absolutely stunning Bird Song, one of the best, from my perspective anyway; also the Althea and Peggy-O are standouts; but what i really love about the Chappell matrix is the great mix between aud & sbd, he just did a fantastic job with this show, and i won't say that about all his sickbits shows (i think 20ish so far), but this is a standout. Haven't given the 27th as much of a listen, but it's on my list of shows to give closer listen to, so may report back more on that down the road.

Currently residing in the welfare state, aka Rhode Island, or "little rhody" as the locals like to say; but hey, it's not all bad, has some wonderful and historic architecture, fantastic restaurants, decent shoreline (nothing compared to Mass), and despite my reference to the place as a red-hot welfare zone, the people here are very friendly, which is saying something for New England; if you can't locate a copy of the 26th, will be happy to send your way!
